2014 Program Overview
The St. Louis Earth Day Symposium provides educational and networking opportunities for local government officials, community leaders, and professionals from diverse backgrounds in the planning and environmental fields. Participation in the Symposium provides an outstanding opportunity to support important programming, raise your visibility in the bi-state St. Louis region, network with other professionals, and share your experience and expertise with area decision makers.
In 2014, the Symposium will focus on aligning stakeholders with the goals and objectives of the Regional Plan for Sustainability. The Plan is the outcome of a 3-year planning process funded through a grant received by East-West Gateway and 10 core partners with the goal of fostering economically competitive, opportunity-rich communities that serve as the backbone of a healthy St. Louis region. The Plan can be viewed at OneStl.org.
- GREEN: Protect and enhance the quality of water, air, land and biodiversity in order to maintain a healthy population, economy, and ecosystem.
- EFFICIENT: Promote regional energy and resource efficiency to maintain the health, safety and economic vitality of our communities.
- PREPARED: Equip the regions’ communities with the infrastructure, knowledge, communications, and partnerships to be safe and resilient.
Continuing Education Credits Available: ASCE, ASLA, AICP, APA

Symposium Planning Committee
Year after year, the Symposium is stitched together by a team of volunteer professionals and community leaders under the facilitation of St. Louis Earth Day. Without their help, the event would pale in comparison to the vibrant program that returns year after year, adapting to reflect the interests of the planning committee and the most pressing environmental issues of the day.
